About Brainsway Deep TMS
Brainsway* Deep TMS is an innovative, revolutionary technology for the treatment of different brain disorders. Deep TMS non-invasively stimulates the brain regions responsible for the smoking addiction using brief magnetic fields, at an amplitude similar to that used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The device has been cleared by the FDA for treating depression, and has been studied in over 60 clinical trials around the world.
The treatment does not entail systemic side effects, which are effects deriving from medication entering the bloodstream and circulating throughout the body.
Brainsway Deep TMS treatment requires only brief daily sessions over a few weeks, without indefinite or permanent medication intake.
About the Study
The study aims to test the safety and efficacy of Deep TMS for patients suffering from smoking addiction. The treatment will take place in leading medical centers around the world and is administered by experts. It entails no surgery, hospitalization or medications, and is based on 15 brief sessions of less than 20 minutes over a period of 3 weeks and additional 3 booster treatments at weeks 4-6. During the treatment, the patient is comfortably seated in a chair, and a cushioned helmet placed over the head generates brief magnetic fields.
Immediately after each session, patients can drive home independently and resume their daily routine. Patients can continue their current behavioral or medication treatment during the study. The study has been approved by the FDA.
Study participants should meet the following criteria: Aged 22-70, which smokes > 10 cigarettes per day for more than 1 year, with no period of abstinence greater than 3 months in the past year.
